Because of the fires in the Columbia Gorge, Portland was covered in smoke all last week. The sky was continually beige, and ash covered our cars in the morning. One of my favorite things to do in summer is to sit out on our balcony, look out into the hills and trees, and stitch. Instead we stayed inside all week with all the windows closed.
I was craving a breath of fresh air and decided to abandon my black and white paintings for something fresh and clear.
